TEACH: BEING A
MENTOR — AND STUDENT

“The task of leadership is not to put greatness into people, but to elicit
it, for the greatness is there already.”

—John Buchan

Who’s your Mrs. Stanley? Who is your role model? Who is the person who gave you the push, the leg up, the insight, the new perspective—just because. There have probably been quite a few people in and out of your life who influenced you. For me, one of those people was my first boss at Leo Burnett. Looking back, I realize just how little I knew back then, but with Leo Burnett’s culture to grow and promote from within, my boss was my mentor and champion. If you think about it, you have had teachers, mentors, coaches, tutors, professors, bosses, and colleagues all along the way who have helped and pushed you. You have spent a large part of your life learning and soaking it all in. Now you have the chance to pay it forward to your team. Not too fast, you’re still a student. Even as a manager and teacher, you still have a lot to learn. That’s one of the first lessons you can teach your people—everyone— including yourself—should always be learning and growing. Patti Grace, U.S. Director of Learning and Development for OmnicomMediaGroup, encourages millennials to “be well read and knowledgeable about not only being a manager of process but also being a leader of people. Develop an acute awareness of your need to always learn and develop your leadership skills.”
